    I'm looking for a method of displaying/listing upcoming scheduled tasks.
    Preferably a command line program that can be run from a bat file.
    The existing command (schtasks) doesn't list the custom tasks that I create - these are listed in the 'Task Scheduler Library').
    Reason is I need something to remind me once a month to power up an external HDD or plug in a portable.

    Silly bugger, I can just create a scheduled task to display an on-screen message before the task is due.
    Please disregard.

    attar, it almost happened to me about a year ago. went into a coughing attack & the air pipe almost shut right down. needless to say that was a bit scary.

    Just make a Word or Notepad note, save it where you can find it, then make a schedule to run it when you wish to be reminded............. :D
